of all battlegrounds, welcome back from columbus. 2% of the electorate in ohio are women. 55%. the combination of the diversity obama coalition. you add it up, simple math. as bill clinton said, just a -- >> in that speech. there was another area that was traditionally republican, but it shifted. >> we'll do a little -- turn this up. if you look at this close presidential election, 2004, post presidential elections in american politics won the suburbs. this is the 2000 election. you see bush winning in the denver suburbs. the president wins, the democrats win in downtown. that's senator kerry in that year. but now, 2012. it's blue. in the key swing states, the democrats dominate in the suburbs. back over to ohio and let's make sure, now mitt romney did a good job. he won lake county, which is a trouble spot, but that's a big suburb just outside of cleveland, but look around columbus. sorry. outside of the columbus city where you were in, the president wins in the suburbs. down here in cincinnati and around here, this has to be for the, look at this election. go back to 2004.
springsteen holding rallies in madison, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, des moines, iowa. governor romney has been in stanford, florida, lynchberg and fairfax, virginia, columbus, ohio, and manchester, ohio, and it wouldn't be an election without a legal mess in florida. voters reporting lines up to seven hours long at some south florida early polling stations. but at the end of the day, tomorrow, it will all possibly be about ohio. the president holding a slim lead in the buckeye state in the polls. in this exclusive interview with cnn, john boehner of ohio says he believes that his state could just swing red. >> polls don't win the elections, voters do. i've been around ohio. i've done this trip around ohio for a lot of presidential races in the past. and i think ohioans vote with their wallets. that's why i think romney will win on tuesday. >> we're blanketing the battle grounds with our cnn reporters. john berman, of course, following that for us this morning. >> good morning. first up is florida. swing state considered a must win particularly for mitt romney. the most recent polling there has
. pennsylvania hasn't gone republican since 1988. virginia, ohio, colorado, statistical tie. the columbus dace patch has the president up two in ohio and the denver post has him up two in colorado. all three of those are within the margin of error. this is a tight race. i think you get the picture here. the candidates spending the final hours locking up their position on the trails. mitt romney is on to columbus, ohio, capping in new hampshire with special guest kid rock. he ends the day where his 2008 campaign began, in des moines, iowa. the president is leaning on two big names in music to help rally voters today. how about this? bruce springsteen and jay-z will perform joining the president on the trail throughout the midwest. over the weekend in new hampshire, president obama and former president bill clinton appeared together for the first time of the 2012 race. president obama thanking president clinton for his hard work while clinton continued to zero in on mitt romney's record. >> let me just say, president clinton has been traveling all across the country for this campaign. he has bee
edition of "your money." i'm coming you to live from columb columbus, ohio. in three days, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been travelin
by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> alp >> all righ>> all i'n columbus ohio at the boathouse restaurant. we're in a state that holds 18 electoral votes. i want you to look at this. it is cnn's most up-to-date polls. 50% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn
-mail to the columbus dispatch newspaper. doug price wrote i guess i really actually feel we shouldn't con tort the voting process to accommodate the urban voter turnout machine. let's be fair and reasonable. price joins me now, along with dave haus, democratic chair for franklin county. right there, look at that camera, guys. do you stand by that remark? do you stand by -- >> number one, it was taken out of context in part and completely misquoted many times. con tort is the right word. i don't think we should con tort the system, twist the system to support any group, any group of voters. secondly, i will point out we have the most liberal voting -- early voting process, more than new york, connecticut, a lot of east coast, democratic states. and i'm for that. and we have voted for it consistent. >> you do a quote like that where you are saying we shouldn't do it for -- >> for anybody. >> you said for african-americans. >> in context, we should not con tort the system for any, we should not twist it. >> how is the system being contorted toward african-americans, for african-americans? >> i'm
to the special flohva panel. adam smith is the political editor, chris booker from our affiliate wcmh in columbus, and larry sabado, editor of the crystal ball blog. larry, let me start with you. the state of virginia, last time it was the closest to the country, the national popular vote. it was the one point off if you will of what obama -- mccain's numbers were to the national numbers were, will it be that way, does the winner of the popular vote win virginia, larry? >> i think virginia is very very, close, chuck. i think you could argue that virginia is one of the two or three closest states in the country right now. it's funny to have a panel of florida, ohio and virginia. florida and ohio are used to this attention. they get it every four years. we used to be the bulgaria of american politics and now we've turned into the paris. or that's how we feel. i would say on the whole, having talked to both sides repeatedly, they both insist that their trackings show their candidate up a point or two. and i have no reason to disbelieve them. that leads me to believe that it's very close. president o
ohio voters had 24 hours to early vote in total. in franklin county where columbus is. and 18 1/2 in cuyahoga county where cleveland is. this year a total of 16 hours over those three days. fewer hours of early voting is how you get lines that look like this. in places like columbus and cleveland and akron. it's an impediment to voting, and it is on purpose. here's another one not on purpose. "the new york times" reporting today, quote, in ohio the crucial democratic strong hold of cuyohoga county which includes cleveland had more people vote early every day this year than in 2008, until monday. what happened monday? hurricane sandy. the day of the storm when the daily tally began to lag from its levels of four years ago. so barriers to voting this year are in some cases acts of god. like big, bad weather events. sometimes they are also acts of man. like republican state election officials working to make voting more difficult and less available. in either case, ohio hangs in the balance, as does the election. joining us now is steve kornacki. he's co-host of msnbc's "the cycle"
libya's civil war. >>> i'm don lemon in columbus, ohio. i want to thank our host, the boat house restaurant. they've been so kind to us to lend us their space this week and look at the beautiful background behind us. and our fire side chat people have been calling. have been fo. thank you so much for joining us tonight here on cnn. i am don lemon and i will see you back here next week. vote. good night. >>> the presidential race has been won by governor ronald reagan of california. >> george h.w. bush. >> too close to call. >> george w. bush re-elected. >> barack obama, president elect of the united states. >> this is cnn. >> right now barack obama and mitt romney, they're trying to close the deal with voters in battleground states. >> stand by for the new presidential poll as we count down the last crucial hours until election day. >> tonight, the final fran advertise race for president before voters have their say. mitt romney and barack obama ending a long and close campaign. >> do you want more of the same or do you want change? >> fighting for every vote until the bitter end
. there was gridlock as bad as we have ever seen. look at a live shot of columbus circle south of central park on the west side. central park still remained closed. it has been like this all day. one of the reasons is that crane is still dangling over 57th street and that is creating the massive traffic jam around the circle. jason joins me from the queensboro bridge. i talked to you earlier today and most people have given up trying to get a vehicle they were walking. >> oh, yeah, it has been a frustrating day for thousands of commuters making their way across the bridge. you can look through the traffic people still making their way at this hour even at 8:00. it is the only way for a lot of these people to get home. we can show you the line still here, people waiting sometimes three or four hours for a bus to show up. you can see now they are waiting patiently, but i want to show you video that we shot within the past 40 minutes or so where you can see people lost their patience. people were trying to get onto one of the buss that pulled up. there was some yelling going back and forth and te
. >> and take a look at ohio. the president holds a two-point lead according to a "columbus dispatch" poll leading 50%-48%. also, "the denver post" finds the president leading mitt romney, 47%-45%. >> another reason to be disturbed. right now, willie, mitt romney should be ahead in colorado. he should be ahead -- i'm just saying, he should be ahead in colorado, in virginia. he should be ahead in north carolina. he should be ahead in florida. he is according to "the miami herald" poll. virginia and colorado are two states that really give me pause for the romney camp. >> especially virginia. let's pause for a moment and appreciate how close this race is. we just went through about ten polls all either tied or within the margin of error. >> today, 24 hours to go, you can look at the polls. it's okay. >> they matter. >> i would ask you, mark, about ohio. we've sat here for weeks and said this is really going to come down to ohio. that poll was two points. the president has had some polls over the last week that showed him with a bigger lead. where are you hearing this race is right now? >> it
concerns. the report started in the columbus free press that john husted had said, quote, experimental software patches were installed in voting machines in 39 counties. voting rights activists say the software could potentially impact more than 4 million votes. the free press also says the software was never independently certified or tested. cnn's don lemon spoke to the secretary of state last night and gave him a chance to respond to those allegations. >> we have a new election night reporting system. all we have is an ability for them to load the data into that election reporting system, and actually, the reporting system and the actual counting system are not connected in any way, and the results that anybody can get in their home on the computer, they're going to get them the same time i do on election night. so we have a very transparent system that's brand new and will help people across this country, across the world, frankly, look right at our website and find out what's going on. >> reporter: so nothing fishy going on. >> nothing fishy going on. >> husted said 4 million earl
voters in the crucial battleground states shows a slight edge for president obama. in ohio, a "columbus dispatch" poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. in pennsylvania, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. in wisconsin, president obama at 51% and mitt romney at 48%. in iowa, president obama at 47% and mitt romney at 42%. as of this afternoon, nate silver of "the new york times" 538 blog forecasts on november 6, president obama has an 85% chance of re-election and president obama will win 307 electoral votes and mitt romney 231. earlier today, chris matthews sat down for an exclusive with vice president joe biden. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i think we're going to win. i don't think it's going to be close in the electoral college. i think we're going to win clearly and i think we're going to win this state, ohio. i've been in here 23, 24 days, we're going to win iowa, wisconsin, nevada, new hampshire. i think we've got an even chance of winning virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. don't just vote. bring your mom, your

into the poll, they're tied among independents. the president is doing very well in cleveland and columbus, where he has to do well. governor romney's doing pretty well down here in the southwest corner of the state where i am and in the rural areas. where he needs to do well. both candidates are doing well where they need to do well. now they're just trying to turn up the energy and turn up the intensity which is why they're both here in the state today. they will both be back in the state today. if you look deep into our poll, you have a classic dead heat in the classic swing state. >> david, you were saying a couple days ago you thought the president was an odds-on favorite to win. do you still feel that way? >> i do, anderson. i think his turnout operation is better in some of these states than mitt romney's but if you look at the overall battleground states now, look at the top ten battleground states, the polls show or the average of polls show that the president is clinging to a small lead in eight out of the ten battleground states. mitt romney is only ahead in two. that would put

county here in the columbus area, when i went out to check out the polls to see how early voting was going, i was stunned by the number of people i saw. the lines were around the building. people waiting in lines for hours. i'm told by the democratic party chair here, anderson, they had 4,000 people in four hours to early vote in montgomery county. and that is causing the republican people here on the ground to try to rethink their strategy to get people to the polls and vote. this is a numbers game and it's all going to come down to the wire. i couldn't believe the number of people i saw, they believe all of those votes. most of those votes today in montgomery county, democratic voters, ander southern. >> let's check in with poppy harlow in des moines. >> reporter: anderson, it is around the clock here, nonstop. we're coming to you live tonight from one of obama's 350 volunteer centers in iowa alone. calling, knocking on doors. they wouldn't give us the number of doors knocked and calls made, they expect to knock on 1.1 million doors here in iowa. romney says, we contacted 2 mil
